The EPS-AC provides electronic power steering to reach trucks, order pickers, man-up VNA trucks and any other application that requires steer-by-wire.

ZAPI offers the system controller, tacho-generator and the motor/gearbox combination for a complete, integrated solution.

The electronic power steering with wire guidance controls the steering for vehicles operating in narrow aisles. Vehicle mounted sensors (Smart antenna) detect the magnetic field from a cable embedded in the floor, and guide the vehicle, without steering input from the operator.

The ZAPI wire guidence system will operate in a wide range of current and frequencies in the embedded guide wire (from 30mA AC up to 100 mA AC at frequencies of 5.2, 6.25, 7, 9.1, 10 kHz).".

Available in steer by wire or torque assisted version
